The Felixes

Or, the Anti-Oscars.TM

Best Picture 2006


PRO: Crash with frequent-flier miles.

CON: Did they audience-test this? A happy ending was just a foreign-language dictionary away.

The Departed

PRO: Every actor you ever wanted to see on the screen together at the same time.

CON: Not even Scorsese could control all those egos at once.

Letters from Iwo Jima

PRO: Revenge against Hollywood's Japanese masters: they bought some studios but lost the war.

CON: Voters confused by a World War Two movie that isn't about the Holocaust.

Little Miss Sunshine

PRO: In a year where "American Idol" loser Jennifer Hudson is everyone's favorite new star, story of talent-show runner-up has legs.

CON: Traveling across country in a van too similar to Borat — or the Partridge Family.

The Queen

PRO: Did we say Babel was this year's Crash? We meant this …

CON: A Lifetime movie with better actors (Original title: Not Without My Separated Daughter-in-Law.)
